From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia
Eleven years before Rabelais publishes his blasons, two other blasons see the light of day. They are written by Clément Marot, a contemporary of Rabelais, and they feature the alternation between reviling and adulation for which the genre will become known. In the blason of the beautiful tit Marot sings the beauty of a woman's breast.
- Plump breast, whiter than an egg
- Breast of brand new white satin
- Breast that puts the rose to shame
- Breast more beautiful than anything
- Firm breast, not a breast but,
- A little round ball of ivory
Again, the counterblason, the blason of the ugly tit, keeps the previous blason companionship.
- Tit, skinny tit,
- flat tit that looks like a flag,
- big tit, long tit,
- tit, must I call thee bag?
- Tit with its ugly black end,
- forever moving tit.
- Who would boast having touched you?
- With their hand fondle you?
